We told you way back in January that MGM had big, big plans for Bond this year, even beyond his upcoming return in Skyfall. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Bond film series (and, more specifically, of the 1962 release of Dr. No), MGM will be releasing a massive Blu-ray box set containing all 22 Bond flicks, due to hit shelves on September 25th. Now MGM has released some more details as to just what fans can expect to find in the over 130 hours of bonus material.



First up, the set's 23rd disc will include three brand-new pieces of content:

The World of Bond -- The 007 films have a look, style and attitude that is signature Bond. From the cars, to the women, to the villains and even the music, Bond films stand apart. "The World of Bond" takes the viewer through the best of five decades worth of classic James Bond in one thrilling montage. "The World of Bond" showcases the fascinating and entertaining interplay among unforgettable moments of danger, seduction, adventure and a dash of that distinguished humor that fans have cherished from the beginning up until now. To add to the experience, "The World of Bond" featurette will also offer a Pop-Up Trivia option to challenge even the sharpest of fans with little known facts and interesting trivia from the Bond Universe.

Being Bond -- There’s only one James Bond -- but he’s proven too much for only one actor to play the role. In the franchise’s 50-year run, six distinguished actors have taken on the part and secured a spot in cinematic history. Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig each reflect on the impact and importance of taking on such a famous role. With this piece, gain insight into what each actor brought to the character and discover how they shaped the world’s most timeless secret agent.

Skyfall Videoblogs -- Behind-the-scenes look at the making of Skyfall from the cast and crew.
